A lucky Largs couple received a welcome Easter present
A lucky Largs couple received a welcome Easter present from the Council – they won’t have to pay Council Tax for a year.
Linda and Alistair Duncan were randomly selected in a competition open to everyone across North Ayrshire signed up to the Council’s ebilling service.
And the Duncans will now be exempt from paying Council Tax over the next 12 months (April 2018- March 2019)
The competition was launched earlier this year in a bid to promote ebilling and to encourage people to move away from receiving paper bills.
To enter all you had to do was sign up for ebilling, while those already using the service were automatically entered into the draw.
Linda said: “I simply couldn’t believe it when I was told we had won. We are both absolutely delighted.
“We had previously received paper bills but decided to switch when we spoke to one of the girls on the phone after learning about the option for ebilling on our bill.
“We’re so glad we did. Not only did we win the competition but the ebilling service is really easy to use.
“The older generation can sometimes be put off by computers and doing things online but it’s really easy to use and fairly straightforward. It makes sense in this day and age. It saves a lot of paper waste.”
